AZUSA, Calif. (AP) — Police say an 11-year-old boy fought off a man who tried to force him into a van in Azusa.
Investigators say the boy was walking home from a Labor Day family gathering Monday night when the van stopped and a man jumped out of the passenger seat.
The man grabbed the boy from behind and attempted to pull him inside. The boy was able to fight the man off and escape without injury.
The Los Angeles Times reports Tuesday that the van was last seen heading south on San Gabriel Avenue from Third Street.
The suspect was described as 20 to 40 years old, with a shaved head, a moustache and goatee.
Police say the van was a dark-colored, older model.
There was no description of the driver.
